Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town coach Muhsin
Ertugral has all but confirmed that veteran right-back Siboniso Gaxa will sign
for the club in the near future.
The defender has been training with the
Urban Warriors after being released by Bidvest Wits earlier this season. Prior
to signing for the Clever Boys, the 33-year-old enjoyed four stellar seasons
with Kaizer Chiefs.
As such, the 58-year-old has made it clear
he wants the Durban-born star in his ranks as soon as possible. 'Pa' is yet to
sign a contract but he is expected to put pen to paper in the coming days.
Speaking to reporters, the Turk said:
"A player like Pa, Sibusiso, he played in Europe, having him on the
sidelines, sometimes I don't understand that. I would love to have him as quick
as possible. He is training with us, but since October, if I am not mistaken,
he had no game-time at all.
"So probably, it will take him around
2-3 weeks to get to a certain level in, we were going to play him on Monday, at
least one half so that he gets a little bit game-time.
"Also, when these types of players
have not been involved, the injury factors can happen so I am a little bit
cautious about that. I can't wait to have him with us but it will take another
three weeks I think."
